National Library of Medicine

The National Library of Medicine (NLM) is seeking competitive proposals to
develop an application programmer interface (API) and first implementation of a
Segmentation and Registration Toolkit (SRT).  The resulting system should be
suitable for computer assisted exploration of the NLM Visible Human Project (VHP)
Male and Female data sets.  The final deliverable product of this SRT version is
to be beyond a beta prototype stage, compatible for direct insertion into the
public domain via internet access through the NLM.  The goal of this initiative
is to create a self-sustaining code development effort to support image analysis
research in segmentation, classification, and deformable registration of medical
images.  The design should include future expansion to parallel implementations
and large memory requirements.  The final delivery version will be required to
be engineered to accommodate change by periodic and incremental modifications.

It is anticipated that Request for Proposals (RFP) NLM-99-103/DJH will be
available on or about April 2, 1999.  RFP NLM-99-103/DJH will be available in
electronic format only.  Paper copies will not be issued. The RFP may be
downloaded from the NLM, Office of Acquisitions Management (OAM) home page on the
World Wide Web (WWW) at the following URL: 
Multiple awards with cost reimbursement contracts are anticipated on or about
September 30, 1999.  The period of performance for each resultant contract is
anticipated to be 36 months.  All responsible sources may submit a proposal which
will be considered by the National Library of Medicine.  Telephone and/or fax
requests will not be honored.
